CRADLE CATHOLICISM has been a BUST!<quoted text>
Hey for once you posted something worthwhile!
I read it and enjoyed your article Michael.
Of course, you offered nothing surprising. But at least it wasn't a propaganda slander piece like we're used too.
The retired Priest is referring to cradle Catholicism. He has a point about the fruits of Vatican II as well.
I talked to a Priest last night who longed to bring back the Communion rail instead of the line.
I don't believe Vatican II necessarily led to cradle Catholicism as much as Protestant influence has.
The truth is, people are going to flock to the live band and free coffee services that the Evangelical mega churches offer. They don't like to kneel down for ten min anymore. And hey, the Evangelicals offer a no holds path to salvation! All you gotta do is believe in Jesus....
By far the vast majority of catholics who fall away are ones born into the faith, not ones who search and find it themselves.
The most observant religious catholics are those that find the faith themselves. There are few of them, as most are indoctrinated from infancy.........BIG MISTAKE
So the BILLIONS in our world who don't believe in Jesus are doomed to eternal hell? Thats good news thankyou Clay!
No loving God would ever teach such a hateful dividing thing...
